This node loads an image from disk based on a specified filename. The image is loaded when the filename changes. This node is typically controlled via Javascript, external input or an RSS feed. The image file is loaded in line with other processing so may result in a pause in execution.
Note that it is the user’s responsibility to ensure the image exists and is valid. If the load fails the Image File Loader will contain an empty image.
